The Agricultural Exhibition Center is open to entries from Granges, Extensions, small farms, individuals and others who live locally and would like to showcase their talents in gardening, home arts and crafts. Our goal is to educate the public about Maine's contribution to the growing and harvesting of local produce. In addition, diverse talents of individuals who hand-make items from woodworking to quilts is prominently featured. The cooking and baking contests are designed to make use of regional foods and techniques used to prepare and serve them. We encourage young people to participate as much as possible.
